Hey again, we've got a new and strange instrument library for for you all. Our Propanium (aka MILLTONE) is a highly emotive, metal tongue drum. It's about 14" wide and 8" deep, with 8 tongues of ascending size. The drum has certain similarities to the Hang Drum, but is cleaner, less “steel-drummy”, and has more harmonics and overtones. It's also a generally less dissonant sounding. We recorded the Propanium library using a variety of articulations, including finger, brushes, mallets and captured tons of ready-to-use performance effects. The library follows our “deep-sampling” methodology. The larger patches generally have approximately 10 velocity layers and 6-8 round robin variations per layer. Certain patches (such as the overtone patches) have over 35 velocity layers for maximum playability.Take a listen to a few demo tracks featuring the Propanium, both by itself and mixed with other instruments to give you a sense of way that it can be used. We hope you like what you hear. :) http://www.tonehammer.com/demos/tonehammer_propanium_demo_1_dressed.mp3 Demo 1 by Troels Folmann, harmonica played by Steven Tavaglione Featuring: Propanium Finger and Propanium Brushed Additional Instruments: Hang Drum, Hang Drum downtuned, Rainstick, Soda Tabs, Bamboo Flute FX, Kalimba, Live Guitar, Soft Clap, Coke Bottle, WaterBowl, Guitar Drum, Clicky Toy, Monkey Balls, Finger Cymbals and Vocals from PowerFX. http://www.tonehammer.com/demos/tonehammer_propanium_demo_1_naked.mp3 Demo 1 (Naked) by Troels Folmann Propanium Finger and Propanium Brushed Only http://www.tonehammer.com/demos/tonehammer_propanium_demo_3_naked.mp3 Demo 2 by Troels Folmann Propanium Finger, Propanium Mallet, Propanium Brush FX, Propanium Overtones, Propanium Ambiences Only.
